"Once we stop believing that morality has a basis in objective reality, once we start believing that morality is nothing more than subjective feelings and wishes, once we reduce justice from a cosmic law to a private preference, we no longer see it as binding or fear to disobey it when it is inconvenient. As Dostoyevsky notes, 'if there is no immortality, everything is permitted.'

Kreeft, P., & Tacelli, R. K.

Well, sure. What is good for human survival would probably affect how humans view what is good.

"For man, authority often means possession, power, dominion, success. For God, however, authority means service, humility, love. It means entering into the logic of Jesus Christ Who leans down to wash the feet of His disciples, Who seeks man's authentic good, Who heals wounds, Who is capable of a love so great as to give His life, because He is Love."

- B16, Angelus 1/29/12

Been a long, long time since a Mizzou basketball team has had these chops:
"Missouri is a legitimate top-5 team and is good enough to win a national championship."

Quiet, reflective Christmas songs from one of my longtime favorite bands. Elegant in their simplicity, an antidote to the chainsaw noise and commotion in which we are often immersed.

More demo than release grade, but a real pleasure nonetheless.free to stream or download.

Happy 236th Birthday to my sons Danny Lozano, John Lozano, my brother Chris Lozano, Michael Edward Gaddis, Chip Awalt and the rest of the Marines that I know or don't know - the Marine Corp remains one of the best institutions in this country, and each of you are a part of carrying that on, making it true today, and making it just as true in the years to come.

No where near perfect, of course, but even with the flaws I'll contend that the Marines know their role and execute that role more effectively than any other civil institution in this country. I may be wrong, but it'll be a tough argument to get there.

Besides, in an era where most Americans think of sacrifice as doing without the latte for breakfast, Marines by and large daily "live without", and often write blank checks to "live without", only to be filled out by others when needed.

Sometime later today I'll probably watch the 234th Birthday video - never tire of this one.

@David I know exactly what you mean, and thanks for taking the time to read it. The reality is so coarse, so beyond our normal day to day lives that for most of us we simply don't think about it. But the reminders relentlessly continue.

For example, we woke up early this morning to a knock on the door - fortunately not THAT knock - to find our youngest son home, having driven straight from NC to spend his leave time home for Thanksgiving. We're elated, but also know that he won't be home for Christmas, and he deploys in June or July to Afghanistan. A few moments later, we find out that one of Dan's fellow Marines died yesterday of injuries he received Saturday, also in Afghanistan. So another family did receive THAT knock on the door, and the public announcement will follow in a day or two.

I sincerely hope that those who make the decisions to go to war and the decisions to abandon our responsibilities in a war already entered (withdraw) will someday learn that there are real live, flesh and blood people who pay the price for those decisions with their lives, and families left behind who pay the corresponding price in grief.

This is not abstraction, nor political calculation ... this is simply reality, an overriding reality for many, the overriding reality of war. Yes they have signed that blank check, yes everyone tries not to think about it but knows that someday the amount may be filled out and the check deposited, and yes when that happens we will dutifully walk with them and pray that they and the others find mercy.

But please remember that the price is real, and please think deeply about this when making these enormous decisions.

Please.

Some awesome juxtapositions - irony in motion.

FastCompany has posted a great story on LockerDome, including investments by Jim McKelvey (Square co-founder) and Brian Matthews (serials sports / tech entrepreneur).

Congrats to all at LockerDome who've been jamming so hard for so long, and here's to a blast taking the game to the next level!

My "brain is shut-down" reading right now is the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. No hurry, just dribbling through it in the inter-work/study periods. About a third of the way done.

My impressions so far:
- the book: first rate, thoughtful, honest.
- the person: enormously flawed, pretty much a brilliant, eloquent, charismatic, manipulative, ego-centric jerk ... who was also happy to lie, if it suited his purpose. If that's the price of "success", no thank you. Can't help but think of Mark 8:36 ,,, "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose ...".

The picture painted in this bio does make the authorizing of an honest bio a pretty daring act, actually. Hopefully that counts for something.

It is unfortunate that our ideology in this country praises and respects people for committing mass evil. The real question for humanity isn't how quickly we can progress, but where's the destination. As I work 100+ hours per week for your son so that we can get there before anyone else, I'm a hypocrite. Though, the reality is that if we don't get there first, there is no chance to do the right thing. May we never forget the reason we do what we do. There is virtue in living a modest life.

Not even sure what to say about this guy - look at what he's doing to get photos from the Baja 1000 (via autoblog)

Just (belatedly) discovered the LOTR Complete Recordings (3 discs for Fellowship, 3 for Two Towers, 4 for Return). Still working my way through, but this is a ridiculously good soundtrack by which to get (thinking) stuff done.
